LAST POST in Network Marketing Moms.blogspot

I has taken me a long time to finally decide to stop blogging here.

When I started to work on Network Marketing Online I learned that you should start with a blog. My first option was a free blogging service.

But then I learned about the advantages of having your own "piece of real state online", a website that you can control and can't be banned from the cyber space.

That is, basically, to have a blog that doesn't have the provider's name included in the web address. The best choice is something like Wordpress. I created NetworkMarketingMoms.net with this in mind and to offer a source site with limited original posts.

Over time, these two blogs have grown to be too similar and I don't see the need to keep both. Even though I can do more things with my .net blog, I've also grown attached to this, my first Internet Network Marketing blog, so it wasn't an easy decision to stop blogging here.

I think there two or three things to learn from my experience:

1. When you decide to take your business online, make an effort to invest in a blog you can control. It can cost as little as $10 a month and it's worth it.

2. If you absolutely need to start with a free service, know that at some point you
will have to switch or at least buy a domain name and forward it to your blog.

3. If you have two different blogs, keep each one with its own personality and specific goal so your followers can benefit from both of them in different ways.

Have you had a similar experience? What did you do? Leave a comment about it so we all can learn.

I'll see you in NetworkMarketingMoms.Net!

One thing you can do in 10 minutes for your Internet Network Marketing business

There are many things you can do in 10 minutes for your business. The one thing I’m concentrating now is writing a blog post. In ten minutes I have to get ready to pick my youngest son from Preschool so I can’t fool around.

The time we have to work our business has to be productive. Reading, learning and training is important but doesn’t make us money is we don’t punt into practice what we learn. Knowledge is only potential power until we take action.

To write a blog post in 10 minutes I reviewed some blog posts in my Google Alerts. I didn’t find anything inspiring enough, really. There are interesting things but I kept thinking about a quotation I read in a doctor’s office:

“Life is about turning the things you want to do into the things you’ve done”

I wanted to write a blog post for a while. Obviously I haven’t been good in keeping my blog updated during the past few months. I’ve been thinking about things I wanted to do. I’m turning some of those in things I’ve done.

I learned somewhere that we can expand our time to fit what we want to do. If we want to write a blog post in 20 minutes, that’s what it will take. If we want to do it in 10, that’s what it will take. As long as we can focus our energy in activities, we can make things happen and turn them into things that are done, not only wanted.

I know, maybe it’s not the only thing we need, right? But it’s one important aspect of reaching our goals.

And as the time is up, I sign off to pick my son up.

What can you do in 10 minutes for your business to go from “want” to “done”? Leave a comment about it!

Stressed-Out Mom? How to Draw a Line in the “Work at Home” Sand So You Can Relax

One of the challenges to work at home is to separate work time from family time keeping our sanity. Sometimes it feels like there are last-minute things going on well, every minute.

In her post Stressed-Out Mom? How to Draw a Line in the “Work at Home” Sand So You Can Relax, Michelle Shaeffer gives practical tips to focus on one aspect of your life at a time.

What I like best in this post is the tips to let your family know that you are working. My "interrupt me only if the house is on fire" doesn't always work so I welcome new ideas and Michelle's are simple and realistic.

Network Marketing training: two things I learned from my children

I always pay attention to the Network Marketing gurus. I always feel like I'm missing something big when I don't watch every video or read every email. I have to remind myself what my focus is at the moment so I don't have the temptation to use my productive time as training time.

But I also learn constantly from my children.

Today they were my gurus, my mentors, my trainers.

It's not like I learn something new. It was more like a reminder of what I can be.

Let me tell you:

The first lesson came from my oldest son.
He has been afraid of the water for a long time. He was always uncomfortable with the idea of Swimming Lessons. He even got stuck in Boy Scouts, he couldn't go further because the was lacking the Swimming part.

I told him that we will take care of that this Summer.

It's the Law of Attraction. I also call it an answered prayer. One of his Scout Masters got in touch with us about possible private Swimming Lessons. My son made a face when I told him he was going.

Fast forward two weeks and almost daily lessons, he passed his Swimming Test. To see him jumping off the board and getting to the other side safely was one of proudest moments as a mom. Then his coach said that she had never seen anyone working so hard without complaining.

He did it. So can I. He taught me to give the best of me, to work hard without complaining. He can jump off the board. So can I.

The second lesson came form my daughter. It was simple yet beautiful.

She was looking at the "Central Penn Parents" magazine. An Ad caught her eye. It was about a contest for the next Cover Child.

She asked me if she could enter. She saw the rules and it was like they were just an invitation for her to participate. Nothing seemed hard to do or like an obstacle. She doesn't even know if she is too old already.

"So?" she asked. I asked back "What if you don't win?". Her answer: "It's okay, I still want to do it".

So what if she doesn't win? She was already a winner in my eyes just for making the decision to go for it. She is not looking at the possibility of not winning. She is looking at the possibility of doing it.

And so can I. She didn't see the obstacles, why should I?

Did I mention my son is 13 and my daughter almost 8?

Aren't children the best thing ever? What have your children taught you?

America the beautiful

I was getting ready to record a video to say Happy 4th of July and my 3 year old started to knock on the door. Of course, he won't take a "Wait a second". I wanted to make a video, my son came, I still got to do it...

So Joaquin and I are wishing you a Happy 4th of July. I have some questions for you in this video that the song "America the beautiful" made me think of when we were in Church today.

Happy July 4
